This morning I met the Register family in Poolewe. David, Emma and Joanne came out in the boats with me but we couldn’t persuade Kate to join us. We started in the canoes and got to grips with what the paddles can do, afterwards we moved onto kayaks and found out what it was like paddling solo with no one else to help (or blame!) when things don’t go right.

We finished the session with a few rafted skills, basically me trying to get Emma and Joanne to fall in!
